's what cbs reported. others said he didn't see it coming. you've known the man for seven years. what's he going to do now? >> i think he can probably do whatever he wants to do other than be president for the next four years. he's one of the great business leaders, and i think he has a lot to say about the economy, and i hope he keeps speaking about it. >> have you talked to him? >> i haven't. >> not yet. is he sort of just lying low and avoiding everyone right now? >> i know he's met with campaign staff and he's focused on trying to find staff jobs, which is the right thing to do, and i admire that. >> what about you in terms of raising money? any problems raising money? people saying, look, i gave you all this money and my guy didn't win? >> i think everyone is disappointed because they thought our work was important, and this was something worth investing in, but i have not had a single donor reach out to me or our co-founders in the group and say they were upset about how we spent the money. and i think the reason for that is because we constantly communicated with our donors and they

in the rain. he was in the backseat of his son's care with his wife ann in the front. an advisers tells cbs news that romney was, quote, shell-shocked when he realized he lost. "the boston globe" said the campaign had planned a big fireworks show to celebrate the victo victory. for a few moments, it was actually online and really to go. and it includes plans for the inauguration. and it says he's working on a smooth transfer of power. but now mid romney is a private citiz citizen. he doesn't have secret service protection. the campaign aides say the credit cards have been cut off and supporters say he's likely to move to his home in california. i think he just fades, says one top donor. i think we have seen for the most part the last of mitt romney. but for the party he's leaving behind, the debate is just beginning. does the gop adapt, or does it fade into relevance? is this the party of lincoln or the party of rush limbaugh. joining me is megan mccain, columnist for "the daily beast and msnbc contributor. on election night she tweeted, quote, my party has to evolve or it's gooding to die.

explaining that before mr. romney even lost. october 31st, campaign sources told cbs news super storm sandy stalled romney's momentum. a few days before the election, if you hadn't had the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk about the deficit. the blame the storm line has continued all through today especially with former mississippi governor haley barbour speaking on the "today" show. >> hurricane sandy saved barack obama's presidency. it broke the momentum romney had coming in the end of october. >> this is a narrative republicans are telling themselves, that the beltway media is also now starting to tell itself because they keep hearing republicans say it. it is not a theory born from reality. this is a checkable thing, emperical idea. their theory is mitt romney was on track to win this thing if it weren't for that blasted storm. this is something we can check. easy. let's start with this. we're all in agreement that the polls were correct despite all the nonsense ahead of the election how the polls seemed so wrong before the election, now that

political geek attitude. >> it's only monday, but this may be the quote of the week. on cbs this morning grover norquist channels his inner 4-year-old, asking how republicans might honor his pledge not to raise taxes and remain open to negotiate with the president. the answer? just listen. >> the president was committed elected on the basis that he was not romney and romney was a poopy head and you should vote against romney and he won by two points. he didn't make the case for higher taxes and higher spending. he kind of sounded like the opposite. >> i'm not sure that's what the president called mitt romney, grover. >> he did say poopy head. he kept a straight face, going on to point out that the president did win most of the battleground states, all but one and he did campaign on having the wealthiest pay their fair share. the president influence start talking about the fiscal cliff working out a budget deal and he's going to meet with labor leaders and wednesday he welcomes business executives to the white house to build on those relationships even though many backed mitt romney durin

, and i checked with mark knoller, cbs radio who is a national institution, unofficial historian, contemporary presidency. president played golf 104 times. you know how many members of congress played golf with him? two. john boehner once and jim clyburn twice. that's it. i think there were 40 basketball games that are known and he played, there were ten members in one game and that's it. and go around -- go around to members -- there are democratic house offices of not freshmen or sophomore that's have never had a single white house official walk across the threshold. and now let's say the president is 100% committed to getting a bunt deal through, a grand bargain. but have you to ask yourself, even if his intentions are absolutely the best and even if he's absolutely committed to it, he is going to have to change the whole way he operates 100%. a democratic lobbyist friend of mine said the motto of the white house seems to be no new friends. [laughter] and so i mean i'm the long-term optimist and short-term pessimist. but we will see. >> and the difference between bill clinton
